The outstanding quality of the 2022 vintage was underlined by the current-vintage Riesling class at the 2022 Clare Valley Wine Show.

Of the 80 wines entered in this section for the Clare Valley’s signature variety, 85 percent received medals, with twelve gold medals in the class.

The Judging Panel’s Chair, Steven Pannell, said that, overall, a very impressive group of wines was presented at this year’s show.

“The 2022 Rieslings were particularly strong,” he said. “The stylish nature of these wines and the purity of their varietal character show the strength of the beautiful Clare Valley as a Riesling stronghold.

“It was also our great fortune to have one of the world’s foremost Riesling authorities, Stuart Pigott, judging this year’s show, with 2022 being one of the best riesling vintages in twenty years.
